ABOUT WPA GUIDE Reviews
I ordered one of these state guides. It was republished, Mississippi, and available at a fairly high cost at amazon. As a genealogist and history reader I find these guides to be historically accurate and offer details that I haven't found anywhere else. Articles are wonderful.
As far as the other review here listed (one star) which complains, not about the book quality but that this person could see a post about Microsoft or whatever it was, the group who scanned the book, likely. I am a little more patient. I don't think we should be so spoiled and expect everything our way, no logos, for free. Moreover, I think it isn't kind or proper to give a wonderful book, a one star review, and then don't discuss the book quality at all.
I come to www.archive.org and can download anything here at no cost, which I find to be amazing. As a historian and reader.
In fact, I recently joined this website and I give a small monthly donation. I also review books. I hope in the future to scan a favorite book or two and upload the scans here. After all I get a whole lot out of this service. It feels good to give back. Hey, if we want this service to continue we need to volunteer time or money.

WPA Guides are great, but...
...is it really necessary to put an ad for Microsoft at the bottom of every page? Aside from being a reminder of the company's colossal ego, the graphic in many places obscures the text of the book itself. I'm sorry, but I'm not downloading a 60-megabyte Microsoft ad. One star until the ads go away.
